Health Professionals Visit Preston New Road
Prof. John Middleton, President of the UK Faculty of Public Health and Prof. Patrick Saunders, Associate Director of WHO Collaborating Centre recently met with members of the Preston New Road Action Group who are among the closest residents to Cuadrilla’s frack site at Little Plumpton. They listened carefully to their concerns and afterwards Professor Middleton said:
“It was very useful and important to see what people are putting up with on a full time basis. My view, and the Faculty view remains, that it is the global threat of climate breakdown that is the major reason why we should be leaving fossil fuel in the ground. For that reason no community needs to be subjected to the environmental damage, the stress and uncertainty, and the intimidation that is so real around this operation.”
DrillOrDrop was present at the meeting and reported it on their website.
